Dak Prescott And The Cowboys Come To Agreement

Per Mike Garafolo, the Dallas Cowboys and quarterback Dak Prescott have finally agreed on a deal. Adam Schefter tweeted that the deal is a four-year $160 million deal, with $126 million guaranteed, which is now the record for most guaranteed money in NFL history. Over the first three years of his deal, Dak will be making an average of $42 million per year.

Dak has been in talks all offseason in 2021 and discussions have stirred on whether or not Cowboys Owner Jerry Jones would be willing to cough up the money for a new contract. There was speculation that Prescott could be franchise tagged, but ultimately the two parties were able to come to a deal, a deal that makes history in the NFL. After being franchise-tagged for the last two seasons, Dak Prescott will remain a Cowboy for the foreseeable future.


Prescott will now be given the opportunity to lead the Cowboys in 2021 and beyond free of any distractions as far as financial situations go. The pro-bowl quarterback only appeared in five games in 2020 due to a season-ending compound fracture and dislocation in his ankle. This contract, if anything, shows the confidence that Dallas has in Dak Prescott, and there will be a lot of talks and pressure surrounding both him and the team in the upcoming NFL season this fall.

The Cowboys finished 6-10 in 2020 and missed the playoffs, which was primarily due to the fact that Dak went down so early in the season. In 2021, ‘America’s Team’ should be looked at as the favorites to win the NFC East, especially considering that the Washington Football Team managed to squeak by with the division title at 7-9 and secure a playoff spot.
